Journey to the West is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. Originally published anonymously in the 1590s during the Ming Dynasty, its authorship has been ascribed to the scholar Wu Cheng'en since the 20th century.
The novel is a fictionalised account of the mythologized legends around the Buddhist monk Xuanzhang's pilgrimage to India (known as the Western Regions) during the Tang dynasty in order to obtain Buddhist religious texts called sūtras. The Bodhisattva Guanyin, on instruction from the Buddha, the historical founder of Buddhism, gives this task to the monk and his three protectors in the form of disciples — namely Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie and Sha Wujing— together with a dragon prince who acts as Xuanzhang's mount, a white horse. These four characters have agreed to help Xuanzhang as an atonement for past sins.
